# NDerivative Command

From GeoGebra Manual

- NDerivative( <Function> )
- Plots the 1st derivative of the given function, calculated numerically.
**Example:**`NDerivative(x^4+2x^3-2x+1)`

plots in*Graphics View*the graph of the function f(x) = 4x³ + 6x² - 2, which is the first derivative of the given function. However, the equation of the plotted function is not shown in*Algebra View*.

- NDerivative( <Function>, <Order n> )
- Plots the nth derivative of the given function, calculated numerically.
